Hi, Norm Matloff here. I’m a professor of computer science at UC Davis, and was a founding member of the UCD Dept. of Statistics. You may know my book, The Art of R Programming (NSP, 2011). I have some strong views on statistics–which you are free to call analytics, data science, machine learning or whatever your favorite term is–so I’ve decided to start this blog.
In my next posting, I’ll discuss my CRAN package with Yingkang Xie, called freqparcoord. It’s a new approach to the parallel coordinates method for visualizing multivariate data.
